Wesley Miller; phony wounded warrior

| June 21, 2016


The folks at Military Phony sent us their work on this Wesley Miller fellow. He was genuinely in the Army for nearly nine years and it looks like he served in Iraq with the 101st Airborne Division. He came in the Army as forklift operator and he left the Army as a recruiter. A pretty good career overall.

But I guess he didn’t think it was enough. His wife posted a set of orders a few weeks ago announcing the award of a Purple Heart Medal;




The orders say that he was awarded the medal “Posthumously” – and clearly he’s alive. He also doesn’t have a Combat Action Badge, which would indicate that he had participated in some sort of engagement with the enemy justifying the Purple Heart.

So, you know me, I don’t want to bust people that don’t deserve busting, I called Walter Avery, the man whose signature appears on the orders. He said that he couldn’t comment on the case, but he did tell me that he forwarded the case to the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division (CID) for an investigation and he said that their investigation would lead them to send it to the FBI if it warranted that action. I’m thinking that if there wasn’t anything wrong with the orders, Mr Avery wouldn’t have sent it to the CID.

Anyway, here are the rest of Miller’s records which don’t show any Purple Heart or any reason that he would have earned one;

I’m thinking that Dimbulb, here, thinks that “posthumously” means after his discharge and not realizing that it means after his death. But, you know, these guys are all smarter than the rest of us anyway.

    Wes, Did you fall silent? Come on, it was fun hearing from you. There are still some unanswered questions. Please come back.

    I know I am extremely late coming into this discussion, but I have a kind of a common sense question. If you were to believe Miller’s story, why would he buy a PH hat? Also I wanted to point out that if he had received orders for a PH the actual medal would more than likely accompany the orders, so why was it not displayed in the picture? Giving benefit of the doubt is a good thing sometimes, but the common sense factor can out weight that quickly. I for one know that Jonn does not post anything unless all bases are covered. I have seen him pull blogs if there is even a small shred of doubt.

    Occasionally, the pipes back up and turds, once thought gone, return. Most stay flushed.

    I just don’t understand people like this. Do you need attention and sympathy this bad.I was in the military and only received 3 campaign ribbons, National Defense Service Medal, Southwest Asia Service Medal, and Sea Service Deployment Ribbon but I am very proud of them and feel no need to embellish my service record.
